Laolu Akande, the media aide to former Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo has reacted to the suspension and arrest of the former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele.
According to him, the damages caused by Emefiele made Nigerians suffer.
In a tweet on Saturday, Akande opined that the battle against Emefiele was not about the CBN cashless policy as was widely speculated but due to corruption.
He said the suspension and subsequent arrest of Emefiele by the Department of State Services, DSS was a relief for Nigerians.
He wrote, “It was about time the CBN Governor faced suspension & investigation. All people of goodwill & those who value integrity, irrespective of political leanings would be thankful for this development.
“Emefiele was given a long rope, but he failed to redeem himself. His shenanigans & the colossal damages he perpetrated at the CBN was to the utter detriment of the Nigerian people.
“This is not even about cashless policy, but apparent corruption especially in the dual exchange rate policy which never made sense. What a sigh of relief”!
